CORTIJO DE LOS CIGARONES
Full Description: This is unique and magical place, part of a small group of houses on the banks of an old river bed, just outside the town of Orgiva. There is 300m² of land on the river bed which owner purchased for parking as the cortijo can only be access on foot up a mule track of about 50m. The house, which is 80m² on two floors, was renovated from a ruin 4 years ago.
The front door is shaded by grape vine sun shade. It enters into the kitchen / living room with a fireplace. Through the living room there are two steps down into a double bedroom with a wooden floor and fitted cupboards. A steep wooden stair case leads down from here into the shower & sink room which is built into the rock; there is no toilet plumbed in as yet. Off this there is another small room, unfinished, which could be converted into a second bedroom. Leading up from the main bedroom is another wooden steep stair case to access a lovely roof terrace with magnificent views.
Separate from the house is a fifth share in a compost toilet, a water deposit, a land of 1 ha and another shared small house. The house relies on solar power for electricity and hot water. There is irrigation water which is pumped up to the shared deposit but drinking water has to be bought or collected from a near by natural spring.
